Food for thought:

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly,
 what is essential is invisible to the eye.

    • 3/4 cups of dried coconut
    • 1 tsp of orange zest

    4. Using your hands, take out a handful of the mixture and form each into a ball.
    5. Then flatten into patties or into whatever shape you desire.
    6. Dehydrator version: Place onto the dehydrator sheets and dry for 6 to 10 hours until the cakes are dry to the touch.
    7. Refrigerator version: place the patties in little cakes into the refrigerator until they are firm.
      Ingredients for the Icing:
    • 2 cups of cashews
    • ½ of water
    • a tiny pinch of salt
    • 1/8 to ¼ cup of honey or agave syrup
    • 2 tbs. of coconut oil or butter

    3. Add all of the other ingredients.
    4. The mixture will seem somewhat runny. But once you place it into the refrigerator, it will thicken after about an hour.
    5. Spread or spoon it on top of your carrot cake and enjoy the yummyness!
